More about Louise
Thesis Title: A Problem Shared is a Problem Halved?: Evaluating the Impact of the Prison Listener Scheme's Contribution to the Reduction of Self-Injurious Behaviour
Louise is a PhD researcher in Criminology with a specialisation in prison-based research at Nottingham Trent University. Her research interests include prison peer support with particular attention paid to the prison listener scheme and the self-injurious behaviour of prisoners.
Louise's PhD thesis A Problem Shared is a Problem Halved?: Evaluating the Impact of the Prison Listener Scheme's Contribution to the Reduction of Self-Injurious Behaviour explores the prison listener scheme's contribution to the reduction of self-injurious behaviour within the female prison estate.
The research uses a range of questionnaires, interviews and a focus group, in order to obtain a sample of the prison population. Louise's research uses data collection methods which are of a qualitative nature and therefore uses thematic analysis to identify emerging themes from within the data.
